Abstract: This thesis is focused on the large scale privatization in the Czech Republic. It
brings the real values of investment into the discussion of direct e ects of FDI.
A unique dataset obtained in the archive of the Ministry of Finance of the Czech
Republic allows us to employ other interesting properties of the privatization
in the comparison of the performance of the FDI recipients during the 1997-
98 crisis. A synthetic method approach is used to estimate the most similar
competitor of each FDI recipient and control for di erent situations the MNE
aliates were prior the crisis. The thesis has also a historical contribution as it
discusses some yet unknown features of the privatization through FDI during
the large scale privatization. Further, the underlying theory of FDI, FDI
into the Czech Republic, the Czech privatization process and macroeconomic
background are described.
